In Barbara Bush’s speech at the Wellesley college commencement in 1990. I believe that her main ideas are to remind the students that success is not defined by social expectations by unique personal goals when listening to her speech! I also feel that she is warning us on labeling others that we don’t know much about, that when she starts to talk about Alice Walker the famous writer of (The Color Purple) Bush also used demographic, the audiences gender age, and cultured, psychographic analysis which focuses on their beliefs values and life experiences and situational analysis, which also focuses on the setting and mood of the audience.
Franklin Roosevelt uses pathos, ethos and logos all throughout his speech. “December 7th 1941- A date that will live in infamy.” This quote will forever be in the minds of Americans. The bombing of the Pearl Harbor is an event no one can forget and neither is Franklin Roosevelt’s speech. It was this that brought American into World War Two and changed history. Roosevelt’s use of both pathetical and logical statements was extremely effective is driving America to declare war on the Japanese Empire.
Theodore Roosevelt uses logos throughout his speech. He uses it to show that he knows what he is doing and using his intelligence to convey that he is the right person to lead the United States. When he says, “Upon the success of our experiment much depends, not only as regards our own welfare, but as regards the welfare of mankind,” it makes us think and feel that he knows what he is talking about, reassuring why he will be a good president. His logos is also shown when he talks about the Republic of the days with Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Bringing this into the speech shows that he knows his history on the US and knows that they did great things for the country, showing that he will also do great things.
In the month of April in 1906, the realization that the nation was growing faster than the government was all to real (okayfey). Monopoles were influencing Americans negatively and the federal and State powers could do nothing about it. The rich had control of almost all the wealth in the United States, and the middle class was not happy about it. They were in a cage match that was only going to end in bloodshed and an unsettled dispute. That being said, President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt was left between all of this to be the intermediary. On April 14, 1906, President Roosevelt delivered one of the most monumentally important speeches we have on record today. Using an impressive combination of the three appeals, he captures the crowd 's
President Franklin D. Roosevelt was in office through one of the most challenging times in American history; the great depression. This was a time when jobs were lessening and the country was in need of a boost. Being our president, many people look up and rely on the actions of him. In this specific time, President Roosevelt needed to put himself in the position of a fellow American citizen as well as remain his leadership role as president. To give the country the little boost of positivity, President Roosevelt constructed his broadcast that aired on October 22, 1933. Within this broadcast, the president used rhetorical techniques such as reminding his audience that he will help the country overcome this difficult time, and by using metaphors and repetition to convey his uplifting message to his audience.
Roosevelt’s use of repetition causes the audience to feel a sense of expectation. Roosevelt held a high position in society with a lot of support from a wide range of followers, thus creating an audience driven towards meeting Roosevelt’s expectations. For example, the 4th paragraph of Roosevelt’s speech maintained a constant usage of the word, I. Roosevelt uses the term, I, various times throughout the speech. Although I is used numerous times, such as when he states, “...I hail the work of this society as typifying one of those forces which tend to the betterment and uplifting of our social system...I should hope to see each man who is a member of this society, from his membership in it become all the
On December 9, 1948, as the United States was approaching a proposal towards the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which seemed unfair and uncompromised, first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt displayed a motivational and moving speech to allow the citizens of America to come together as one to make the best of the situation that was proposed in front of them.The analysis of the tingling speech on the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, will explore the deep rhetorical devices used to compel the audience and America, including the true purpose and background of this particular eye-opening speech.
In President Roosevelt’s speech, there are multiple rhetorical devices that can get a point across. Using these rhetorical devices, the audience may be able to become swayed by the main message being expressed. The goal of a speech is to catch the audience’s attention greatly and persuade them to gain similar beliefs on whatever is being spoken of. In Roosevelt’s speech, the mood expresses a ray of hope yet a feel of strictness.
The Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation and the Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage are both great examples of ethos, pathos, and logos. They are both political messages created to not only rely on facts but to strike emotion in the hearts of the audience, whoever they may be. In the Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation speech given by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on December 8, 1941, in response to one of the most tragic days in U.S. history, to help rally the people of the United States of America to the realization of war between the Japanese and American forces. The Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage was given by Carrie Chapman Catt to spark a revolt and spur up emotion of great pride in women of all nature to take a stand fight for what is right. Both these speeches use of rhetoric leave both as some of the best but the speech given by Franklin D. Roosevelt was by far more vivid.
As a president of America, the credibility of Lyndon Baines Johnson is well-established. He did not have to establish his credibility as everyone already knows it and he is a trustworthy source. But, as his audiences are young adults, so he still try to boost his credibility at the beginning of the speech with the joke about coeducation college student partying to let the students know he has been there too.
For a very long time, the voting rights of the citizens have been a problem in the US. It started out with only men with land being able to vote, and then expanded to white men, and then to all men. However, women were never in the situation, they were disregarded and believed to not be worthy enough to have the same rights as men. They were essentially being treated as property, therefore having no rights. But, in Susan B. Anthony’s speech, she hits upon the point that women are just as righteous as men. Susan B. Anthony was an American social reformer and women 's rights activist, and in 1872 was arrested because she tried to vote and express her opinion in the presidential election. However, her decision was reasonable and she should not
Eleanor Roosevelt, with her informal speech, the Adoption of the Declaration of Human Rights (1948), explains her opinion on the importance of the declaration and how we need to treat freedom has a right not a privilege. Eleanor supports her speech by using euphemism, apostrophe, and anadiplosis. Eleanor's purpose for the speech is to address the United Nations about human rights and its importance in the world. She formally addresses this speech to the United Nations, World War II victims, and all victims in the world.
In 1962 President John F. Kennedy held a press conference in which he informed the audience on his stance for the rising steel prices. Kennedy not only wanted to inform the audience, he wanted to get them on his side of the argument. He wanted to show the audience that the rising steel prices were going to have a negative impact on the nation. To do this Kennedy used some of the rhetoric strategies and tools. He used periodic sentences, anaphora, and diction. By using these strategies Kennedy was able to put emphasis in his speech. He effectively showed the audience Hayes viewpoint on the rising steel prices through his word choice.
Theodore Roosevelt, in his compassionate letter to his son “The Proper Place for Sports” (1903), implies that football or sports in general shouldn’t take priority over more urgent responsibilities. Roosevelt supports his opinion by incorporating insightful historical events, acknowledging the potentially reasonable opposing view, and implementing compelling anaphora. His purpose is prevent his son, Ted, from completely being engulfed by his demanding dream of joining his school football team in order to convince him to focus on other vital duties, such as schoolwork. Roosevelt adopts a sympathetic tone (“I am proud of your pluck, and I greatly admire football… But the very things that make it a good game make it a rough game”) aimed to his
Eleanor Roosevelt believed libraries had the power to change our nation for the better, and I agree with her because libraries educate our people, our education is based on our libraries, and contrary to popular belief, there is not enough libraries, books, or funding for the libraries in the United States.
